You’ve had 30-year-old men getting married to 13 year old girls for like 100’s of years.” Further, Rani added, “I think it’s what we want to accept and what we don’t want to accept. So I think it comes from a collective thought process that has been told to us from childhood and that is what we are following because we are not using our brains.”

I think the industry does what they expect whether it will be accepted by the audience or not.” Further, Karan Johar said what many netizens are waiting to see.
